Lindsay Templeton

Lindsay Templeton Fundraiser~

Hi all, Our young friend, Lindsay Templeton (age 3), was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. She and her family live in Statesville. I have details on benefits/fund raisers and wanted to pass the info along. The vendor fair that Doodlebug's had scheduled on September 19th is now a "Benefit for Lindsay". Many vendors have agreed to donate a portion of their proceeds to the family and/or a product to a silent auction. All silent auction proceeds will go to help the family as well. 2 of the vendors who have been gracious enough to offer portions of their proceeds are Baby Crazy (Heather Morgan) Storytime with Felts (Lois Graham) Take a look at their websites (don't order from the website - just use it as reference). Its a great place to start your Christmas shopping or birthday shopping. As long as you order on the 19th, part of your order will go to help Lindsay and her family. If you want to order and can't make it that night, let me know and we'll work something out. I also have a book for Baby Crazy and some sample toys in the store if you want to stop by for a look. Both representatives will be at the vendor fair/benefit. So make sure to come out. I'll pass more info along as I can. Thanks for all of your support.

Easy Chicken Pasta

What's For Supper Ya'll?

White Beans, Pasta and Chicken
8 ounces dried cavatappi, fusilli, rotini, ditaloni, or other short pasta tubes
1 15- to 19-ounce can cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
12 ounces cooked chicken, shredded
1/4 cup snipped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley sprigs (optional - I usually skip it)
Olive oil (optional - but I recommend at least a little for moisture)
1. In a large saucepan, cook pasta according to package directions; drain well and set aside.
2. In a blender or food processor, combine 3/4 cup of the beans and the chicken broth. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Place bean puree in pan used for cooking the pasta; bring to boiling. Return pasta to pan.
3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon hot olive oil for 1 minute. Add tomatoes; cook for 1 minute. Add the remaining beans, shredded chicken, snipped parsley, pepper and salt. Heat through.
4. Add the tomato mixture to hot pasta; toss to cost. Top with parsley sprigs and additional olive oil. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.
